THE OTHER FAB FOUR The Remarkable True Story of the Liverbirds, Britain's First Female Rock Band

by | Read by Mary McGlory, Sylvia Wiggins

Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Mary McGlory and Sylvia Saunders/Wiggins are the authors and narrators of this eccentric musical memoir. Both women are grand storytellers, although Wiggins is the smoother narrator, injecting more rhythm and modulation into her chapters. McGlory has the thicker Liverpool accent. Together, the pair re-create the musical history of their all-women band, the Liverbirds. The group peaked during the heyday of the British music invasion, touring with the Rolling Stones, sharing a recording studio with the Kinks, rolling joints for Jimi Hendrix, almost signing with Beatles manager Brian Epstein, and turning down Chuck Berry's offer to perform topless in Las Vegas. The personal stories that track the band's success--Mary ultimately gives up her dream of becoming a nun; Sylvia suffers a challenging pregnancy--add to the book's charm.
